Over the past ten years, we have been committed to teaching sustainability and environmental awareness. In 2007 the school joined the Eco Schools program, and in 2016 we achieved our fourth green flag. This is all down to the tremendous work of our Eco Warriors. They tirelessly ‘spy’ on each class to check and turn off taps, lights, interactive whiteboards and to even check doors and windows. They also litter pick daily. With the support of Mrs Hunter-Lacey, they also fund raise for our school gardens and are always thinking of ways to support our global environment with special events such as the Water Aid pipeline challenge or encouraging everyone to follow the frog to support rain forests sustainability with their own, child led, assemblies.

 

In 2008 we had a large wind turbine installed. This was paid for with money raised through fundraising and grants.  In the same year we won an Ashden Award for our work on sustainability and used the prize money to build a beautiful outdoor classroom made from willow.  We were also lucky enough to win the National Energy Efficiency Awards in 2008. We have continued to develop relationships with organisations such as The Living Rain Forest and other schools, as a mentor and flagship school.
